dictation software for Catalina?  

   RSS

0

Nuance is no longer making Dragon dictation software for the Mac. My old software will not work in Catalina. The built-in software for my 2017 iMac is pitiful when it comes to  Dictation. It is almost unusable compared to Dragon. Does anyone have a solution or a software recommendation for a dictation program for the iMac.. If avirtual machine running windows is the only solution, what is the best way to set it up? Thanks

Hello Jim

I admit that I am not an expert when it comes to dictation software for the Mac or any platform. I am usually mute in front of my machine but all kidding aside I only wish you left us some details on how you use dictation, in other words what your goals are.

I will leave some links for you despite not understanding your primary goal, just some things on dictation.


Here is a Mac Observer search result for "Voice dictation"

https://www.macobserver.com/?s=voice+dictation

Here is a very thorough 10 min youtube video by MacMost titled:
Learn How To Use Dictation On Your Mac
(Catalina specific but with some previous MacOS versions equivalencies noted)

Apple's own support article on Voice Control

https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT210539


If none of these links meet your goals, chime back with specific details on what your dictation goals are and I will try to find some other candidates for you.

Cheers

—Alex
